Vanessa Bryant calls out Meek Mill for ‘Disrespectful’ Kobe Bryant Lyric, rapper apologizes


Vanessa Bryant is speaking out about Meek Mill’s controversial Kobe Bryant lyric.

After a leaked Mill song spurred backlash last week over a line about the late NBA superstar’s death, Bryant took to her Instagram Story on Monday to condemn the lyric.

“Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful,” she wrote. “Period. I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this. If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.”

Less than a half-hour after Kobe’s 38-year-old widow posted the message, Mill tweeted, “I’m going back savage in this s— … f—- ya feelings!”

Shortly after that, he tweeted, “Ion trust people gotta play it raw ……”

Many individuals responded to these tweets asking the 33-year-old rapper to apologize to Bryant.

Early Tuesday morning, Mill again took to Twitter to clarify that he had reached out to Bryant.

“I apologized to her in private earlier today, not to the public…Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”


Mill’s lyric that leaked on Feb. 17 read, “This b—- I’m f—– always tell me that she love but she ain’t ever showed me/ Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it another Kobe.”

The song hit the Internet just over a year after the Los Angeles Lakers legend and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020. Seven other lives were also lost in the tragic accident.
